Own a company and want to drive efficiency and reduce expenses while simultaneously slashing downtime? Then jump head first into the cloud by leveraging the intuitive cloud management software from OnApp. OnApp’s Cloud v3.0 recently entered the public beta phase and is being highlighted as the biggest product launch from the company since OnApp Cloud was released back in July 2010 as its bigger, better and much easier to use.
The solution can fully support VMware, enabling clients who power their cloud services via the VMware ESXi/vSphere 5.0 and services based on Xen and KVM hypervisors to successfully perform within the same environment.
Recently, BlackSun began to power its own OnApp-based cloud service for the cost-effective price of $1.99. The company is known for its hosting services, dedicated servers, colocation services and VPS hosting based on VMware and by offering the OnApp cloud service, it is “enabling customers to deploy virtual servers on demand, with pay-as-you-go hourly billing. BlackSun customers can now launch and manage their own cloud services through a Web-based portal, according to a recent blog post.
In a video, BlackSun's CEO Steve Rogoschewsky commented, “What makes BlackSun unique is that we are centrally located in Canada and the nice thing about our location is nothing ever happens here so we are known as the Web hosting company located farthest from a fault line.”
When BlackSun realized its clients were in need of an easy to use cloud-based computing system that could be used to instantly deploy servers, it found OnApp to be best choice in this market. “They loved the service, the fact that they could manage their servers via an iPad or iPhone (News - Alert) and within minutes of signing up on our VPS form, they had instant access to the portal,” Rogoschewsky added.
The cloud management software provider stands out from other competitors in the space making it the ideal partner for organizations due to the ultra high level of customer service it offers. The technology support team at OnApp is there from the very beginning to assist companies migrate to the cloud without hassle and in a very short period of time.
“The system is reliable and is simply something that we feel comfortable pushing to our customers,” he commented.
